Since President Donald Trump is said to be ending the birthright citizenship most people would feel depressed about this probably having had plans to secure an American citizenship for their unborn children. But one shouldn't worry as there other countries that grant jus soli citizenship (that is birthright citizenship). Some examples are Canada, Brazil, Venezuela, Uruguay and so many other dignified countries.
What do you feel? Do you think these countries can be substitutes for America
Absolutely yes, in as much as USA are the world power and arguably a great nation for someone to be a citizen of, there is always a substitute. Nothing in life that doesn't have alternative, if USA said they don't want such, there are equivalent big nations who still operate such, why won't i go for them.
Economy wise? No Freedom wise? No. Dignity wise? No. America is unarguably the greatest nation on earth presently. There's something about America that brings dignity, respect and power anytime the name is mentioned or even when someone is said to reside there. This new development is both disturbing and disappointing for people who have plans to make their children citizens by birth.
President Trump banning citizenship by birth for non citizen is a very good idea to protect the united state of American atlarge cause people from other countries are really abusing it.soon other countries that are still involved in such citizenship will put a stop to it .
That will affect alot of people(the foreigners)and create worries. Relocationisn't bad really but how easy is it to relocate? They are many factors that would make that almost impossible. We know how had it is to much from a state to the other let alone from one country to another. No easy bro, but I know as regards Donald, power can still change hand.
To find solution to the birthright citizenship ,we'll consider it in 2 ways for instance the people that acquired the citizenship just to be named with America may not feel the hot unlike those that secured it because the have a present connection in America or that a man who has an establishment or a standing business wants his child to take over after his departure this means that no other country among all other good countries can substitute American citizenship.
No place like home they always say....the best substitute is developing your country to be like America.most at times people go outside because of how things are bad in their country,how many times have you seen Americans in Nigeria unless they are on mission.
So let's develop our country let other people come here for to secure citizenship certificate.
I thankGod there is other develop country that still have room for birth citizens because my children will not suffer what I suffered with Jamb and post utme. At least giving birth to them in Canada will make them to school there easily.
We are all familiar with the southafrica incident, and now this, If we all stay in our Country and invest in it, we won't need to be traveling out just to get foreign citizenship for us and our kids.
I see no reason why we can't have our children in our country here and give them the life they want, fine we all want a greener pasture but no place like home and we can achieve a lot here as well with the right mindset
I think it's a good idea, for the sake of the country. Because most people see it as a means to gain the advantages and goodies of america in which most of them don't deserve.
I think Donald Trump is doing the right thing and in believe he's right.
There are types and situations were we say no place like home but in this case I'll say no place like America. I have a big aunt who has gained so much just because her parents gave birth to her in the United States in the late 70's. Her mom and the rest of her siblings are now benefiting from her now because she was the only in the family born there. Since 2013 her mum has been in the United States and doesn't dream of coming back to Nigeria. No place like the USA
Instead of trying to make our own country better some rich niggas out there are busy securing foreign citizenship for their children, what of those who can't even afford to eat back at home talk more of flying abroad for a holiday.
I think it's for the best interest of the citizens of America by Origin.. many people people who are citizens of any country by birth sometimes are the reason why a country has lots of crisis.
If he's putting an end to it,then fine.
I mean..he's the president.
If our country is in a stable condition ,no one would be thinking of going to give birth in the States.
But form now,Canada should be a better alternative.
I don't think this country can act as a substitute to America in terms of birthright citizenship because America is a great country of dignity and no country I repeats no country can act as a substitute
Canada is a very good substitute for America. We should stop deceiving ourselves and face the facts, only a miracle can save us in this country. Securing citizenship for your children abroad is not a bad thing, it's a very good initiative to securing the future of our children
President Trump banning citizenship by birth for non citizen is a very good idea to protect the united state of American atlarge cause people from other countries are really abusing it.
In my own contributions, nothing spoil, because there is no special treatments America do give to people who secure this birthright and other countries like England, Mexico, Brazil, France e.t.c cannot give.
President Donald Tromp is doing a right thing, because of our Nigerians will moved down to another country after pregnant their wives so that they will give birth there for their childrens to claim citizenship which while is wrong.
The solution is that as long as people are travelling outside for greener pastures. More people should be returning back home, coming with ideas and skills on how to make the country better. If not people would be migrating in fluxes on a daily basis.
Those countries can substitute for America but not to perfectly since decisions made by America still affect those other countries directly or indirectly. Nevertheless, they can afford green pastures for those that relocate into them.
Oh yes! If president Donald Trump could stop child both in the United States of Ameriaca, definately other countries won't do the same. Because if you look at it critically you reliase that most of their works are been handled by foreigners which are blacks to develop their country. So they wouldn't try it.
Almost every one is looking for the America dream. Trump step is good, I loud it not because I won't be affected but because America is getting out of shape if nothing is done. This is is call for our leaders to do the right thing and no one will travel. The Arabs especially UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Saudi citizens hardly travel except for holidays not even to school abroad, why? It because the government make the place ok. Until we get to that level, you can pick other countries, although none of those nations can match the United States' standard. Good luck shopping for a second country.
Trump step is a good one as the America economy is going bad everyday when those chasing the America dream will argue otherwise. If our leaders do the right thing, no one will travel abroad. Most Arab citizens like the Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain don't travel like that not even for school except for holidays. Well other countries are there to choose from. Good luck shopping for a second country.
Let them fix our country and stop looking to secure there own children future at the expense of the masses, they keep going there with our national treasury without caring for the masses. I really hope trump and other European countries can ban Nigeria politicians and families from entering there country. That's when we will start getting it right as a Nation.
I am not in support of it ... Leaving your country to give birth in another country .. So that your children will be citizens of that country ... Isn't your country enough for the child.. Why give less value to your own country
Well, it looks like all countries are taking concrete plans to stop foreigners from givingg birth in their country. It started with the UK, now its the US and soon it would be the other nations of the world everyone is planning to go. However, i think the other countries can be some good substitutes for the United states
I totally understand Trump's perspective. Nigerians would definitely kick against any law that allows Niger republicans or Somalian birth citizenship if born in Nigeria. I pray our country gets better so we don't have to rely on them for better opportunities.
i do agree with trump birth citizenship should be banned because some use to for immoral activity and call them self american if ur own country is well developed why will u go give birth abroad. I do like the idea.
America dream will argue otherwise. If our leaders do the right thing, no one will travel abroad. Most Arab citizens like the Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain don't travel like that not even for school except for holidays. Well other countries are there to choose from. Good luck shopping for a second country.Donald Tromp is doing a right thing, because of our Nigerians will moved down to another country after pregnant their wives so that they will give birth there for their children
Firstly, there is no substitute country for the United states of America. It's called the American dream for a reason. Also, the countries mentioned are just substitutes not a solution to birthright citizenship in America. There is no solution to it. Unless you are a citizen of America, your child won't have automatic citizenship. period
I don't see the reasons why an individual would want his child to be of another nationality different from his/herself that's not logical, but to those that still find this step good can proceed to Canada and the other options given to them
The law Donald Trump's is trying to make out on ending birth right citizen is his on concern since there are other develop countries still In the world. So making out such law is left for him
These countries can't be substitute for America, the name America has created for themselves is far to big compared to these countries even though the mentioned countries has capacities. America is one but too many.
It I thankGod there is other develop country that still have room for birth citizens because my children will not suffer what I suffered with Jamb and post utme. At least giving birth to them in Canada will make them to school there easily.
President Donald Trump has done a Good job.. This thing is done by most Africans which appear to be wrong... And Also thus doesn't give us a good heritage in Africa as a continent... And also USA Can be replaced if they refuse to allow people to maintain citizenship by birth right.
If the US president doesn't want birth right citizen then people should actually go for another states. Though nothing is permanent, Trump will surely leave one day. Another government might scone with a new idea. But I think for now people should just go for another option
He has a reason...because people use it as a means to make money...and its protecting the resources and population of America
As a lot of Africans run there to give birth these days
America is not he only country abroad,personally i applaud Donald Trump,it's a wise decision.Nigeria just like going to somebody else's country,maybe this one will make us stay in our country.
And if they can't stay,there are other countries abroad not only USA
In life there's always alternative even better than the one we think it's good
So the best alternative is your home,no place like home, if your own country is okay for you,you won't be seeking birthright ion another man's soil
It the duty of the leader to think of his nation first before any other thing. American economy is in jeopardy because of that and he is about to take a good measure which is what a good leader should do. Look at SA, their leaders supported them in a way during xenophobic attacks. I think we should better concentrate in making our nation to be the best rather than surfing for another soil country.
I guest the writer is more economical about the whole ending birthright citizenship process in the United State. Mind you US is not the bed of roses as people outside the sphere reason. You have just mentioned but a few of other developed and developing nations that offers such but that should not border Nigerians like as if everybody wants to leave the country to become a citizen of America.
I think this is actually a good thing because of our leaders. Most of them just take their kids outside the country before their born and they only live off from the money their fathers and forefathers are extorting from citizens in Nigeria here. It(Trump’s decision) has both it’s good and bad sides to it.
They are other countries naw or are they things you benefit from being a citizen of America without working for it. Its not a big deal so people should stop sweating it, Trump can go to hell with his citizenship
This thing is done by most Africans which appear to be wrong... And Also thus doesn't give us a good heritage in Africa as a continent... And also USA Can be replaced if they refuse to allow people to maintain citizenship by birth right.
